Heinz Niederhauser Outstanding Coaching Award – Kieran Jones

Cross Country Ski Ontario is pleased to announce Kieran Jones of Nakkertok Nordic as the recipient of the Heinz Niederhauser Outstanding Coaching Award.   Kieran’s passion for coaching  is demonstrated through his dedication and commitment to athletes of all abilities.  “Kieran is human embodiment of the quote ‘a good coach can change the [race], a great coach can change a life’. Kieran has had an indescribable impact on the lives of his athletes. Kieran has worked with athletes across the whole development spectrum. He promises every athlete he’d do what he could to help them achieve their goals; and in the process, he’d guided many to realize that cross-country skiing and cross-country ski racing is a large part of their life and something, no matter what the results sheet looked like at the end of the day, that they would continue.”  Heinz would approve!
